    One error in the guide, though. You mention Sandstorm Treks as your preferred boot for STR and DEX, but Treks give STR and VIT...

    Usually, to hit 125% FCR with my necros, I use HoTo, max Spirit, Trang's, Arach, and one 10% FCR ring. This leaves Mara's and Shako as Amulet / helm, which is infinitely more affordable than trying to go for a crafted ammy or 2/20/2 circlets. The price difference is absolutely huge.

    Unfortunately, it seems that if you decide to go with HoZ / HoTo, you will need both of the über-expensive items on the list, plus two 10% FCR rings to hit the 125% breakpoint. It might be just me, but that extra frame can make all the difference in the world when it comes to caster speed, so I can't really see HoZ as viable except to the highest echelon of rich players.

    But, seeing as how I'm a Necro player at heart, any random Paladin commentary from me may not be on the mark. Thanks again for the guide!
    Thanks for pointing the error out, will definately include in next update.

    You need more +skills basically, 28 skill level is only 8 more than max. Hoto, enigma, and a shako adds plus seven total. Then you can get +2 on mara, +2 on pally spirit, +1 on arach, +2 on rings, +3 from torch, +1 from anni. You could also get some pcombat charms for even more damage although you should be good pvm without em.

    so, in order to do damage above ~6k, a hammerdin will need the key skills to be in excess of lvl 30?

    Some typo's. For spirit weapon, you don't get resist. For spirit shield, you said "Runes expensive", which I think you meant shield.

    Re: Giga's 1.11 Ladder Hammerdin Guide!

    im looking at dumping around 203 total dex including equip so before i spend the points---did i figure it out right (sheild block rating+holysheild)/(dex-15)/levelx2

    and can (sheild block rating+holy sheild) be more than 75%?

    im using a sheild with block of40% by itself (spirit w/ huge resists)

    so here goes
    (40+36)(203-15)/95x2
    76x188/190
    75.2 chance to block

    or do i dump spirit and get a hoz

    rez on spirit is 80/80/46/80 fcr29

    I was thinking of trying an Act 1 merc with Ice bow which has a huge level 18 Holy Freeze, not to mention boost to cold damage.
    Anybody tried this before I spend 2 HRs ?
